the frozen ghost
Genre: Horror Mystery
Director: Harold Young (The Mummy's Tomb) / William Nigh (Black Dragons)
Starring: Lon Chaney, Jr., Evelyn Ankers, Milburn Stone / Bela Lugosi, Wallace Ford, Arline JudgeIn Brief: It's finally the makeup showing of the canceled The Frozen Ghost (1945) starring Lon Chaney, Jr. in one of his better Inner Sanctum mysteries. This time it's paired with the full-tilt nonsense of the delightfully silly Mysterious Mr. Wong starring Bela Lugosi in the title role, Mr. Wong — a criminal mastermind matching wits against wisecracking reporter Wallace Ford (professional wisecracking reporter portrayer). It rarely makes good sense and even feels like a serial stuffed into a 60-minute movie, but it provides no end of bizarre entertainment with the most anticlimactic ending ever.
Genre: Horror Mystery
Director: Harold Young / Joseph H. Lewis
Starring: Lon Chaney Jr., Evelyn Ankers, Martin Kosleck / Bela Lugosi, Polly Ann Young, Clarence MuseIn Brief: Two films with the word “ghost” in the title and nary a specter in sight is the defining aspect of this double bill of 1940s horror — The Frozen Ghost (1945) and Invisible Ghost (1941). The first stars Lon Chaney Jr. as a hypnotist who has a breakdown when a man dies during his act. The second stars Bela Lugosi as a kindly family man — who, every so often, goes around strangling people (a character flaw of note). Both are about an hour long and both offer stylish — and engagingly silly — entertainment.
